A change.org petition has been created with the hopes of "Let[ting] Will Grier play!" As of 8:00 p.m. ET, 1,597 individuals have endorsed the cause.
Jim McElwain said they learned about it (Will Grier's positive test) yesterday and #UF will appeal this.

Grier admits taking an over-the-counter substance, which led to a failed NCAA drug test. Florida will appeal the decision with the hopes Grier will be able to come back and play this season.
Grier and his family appear very remorseful over the current situation. With Grier out, Treon Harris is expected to take over the starting signal-caller duties for the Gators as they travel to No. 6 LSU on Saturday.
Thank you for the great support of Will and our Family! Honest mistake but a mistake nonetheless. Proud of him for owning it. Jeremiah 29:11
